“NewspaperArchive has been like finding a pot of gold for me. My family is from West Virginia, and I am amazed at all the articles I’ve found. I also use NewspaperArchive for genealogy and have found lots of obituaries and other amazing articles.”
“I use NewspaperArchive almost daily. Initially, I purchased it to do research for my family genealogy. I have found numerous articles relating to family members that provided information I didn't know. I am also putting together a program for our historical society using old articles, advertisements, pictures, and other items from NewspaperArchive.”
“NewspaperArchive was the only site that had copies of my old hometown newspaper. I have become so wrapped up in our local history there have been some days I have literally spent an entire day perusing issue after issue in our local newspaper, and I love it. Thank you, NewspaperArchive, for helping take my newfound hobby to the next level.”
“This is the best money I’ve spent!” I started using NewspaperArchive to look up information about my dad, who was a jockey. Now I look up everything! I love to look up articles on people–the way older articles are written is much more vivid than today. Even if I search for a person and know it's not the right one, I read those articles anyway.”

Why Are Local Newspapers Important?
You are more likely to find your ancestors in small town, local newspapers. In big cities, the newspapers publish stories about spectacular events and celebrities, but in smaller towns, common people are featured in articles. You may even read an article about a family reunion, a church event, or a gradeschool science fair.
